Keys won't repeat

I can not type consecutive keys without waiting a few seconds between each keystroke. It has nothing to do with Stickykeys or repeat speed.

Re: keys won't repeat

You may be tripping over an accessibility option. Try this:

1. Click the Start->Control Panel menu item.
2. Click Ease of Access.
3. Under Ease of Access Center, click Change How Your Keyboard Works.
4. If Turn On FilterKeys is checked, UNcheck it.
5. Click Apply or Save.

Re: keys won't repeat

I had same problem, My fix was because I had a "EZ@home" wireless PC Remote Control plugged in. And it has a media toggle switch, which turns the keyboard into a Media Center Friendly Keyboard. Once I deactivated this My Keyboard Works Perfectly!
Check for something of the same on your PC, any additional keyboards or controllers on board?????
mail me for additional help

How do I connect my key board to the computer, do I need something to connect it with

Hello there, Mostly, you need nothing to connect it to your pc, just push usb/ps2 in your pc.
Otherwise, some multimedia or gamers keyboards need to install cd with drivers (which came with drivers), so you can use all additional multimedia keys.

Keyboard beeps when any key is pressed

The reason these beeps are happening is because there might be a key that is slightly depressed enough to where its registering keystrokes. Move your fingers all over the keyboard and see if you the beeps stop after you do that. If it still is going on then that means your keyboard is bad and will need to be replaced.

Keyboard Problem

To activate StickyKeys
Press the Shift key five times. A dialog box opens with instructions on how to set up the StickyKeys feature.
If you click OK, an icon (a group of squares) appears in the notification area.
To turn off StickyKeys, press the Shift key five times.
Hope this helps you......

First for both the keyboard and mouse you can set the speeds. Secondly, download Ccleaner and run it. Lastly and most important if you have not done this.....take the keyboard and bang it upside down on your may be surprised as to what comes out.
Late nights cramming and pretzels...these are the obvious fixes. If that still does not do it you can take the keyboard apart and with a soft cloth moistened in alcohol clean the film and keys.

Keyboard beeps when any key is pressed

I found out what was wrong in my case. Someone had tampered with the accessibility options

So for anyone with keyboard problem check :
In Windows XP : control panel-> accessibility options -> keyboard : StickyKeys and Filterkeys checkboxes should be unchecked.

In Windows Vista : Ease of access -> Ease of access center -> keyboard : StickyKeys and Filterkeys checkboxes should be unchecked.

The first letter repeats

Go to control panel>priters and other hardware>keyboard, then in the speed tab move cursor to slower side and test in area below. It may stop it from happening, but you would expect it to do it on every keystroke, so it may be sending the first stroke to wake up the keyboard. It may be the keyboard or the sender that is faulty and a replacement to really solve it.
